In the Butterfly Class (pre-K/TK) our primary goal is to get your child socially, emotionally and academically prepared for Kindergarten. Our focus will be on introducing your child to age-appropriate reading skills, which include rhyming, phonics, and sight words. as well as making your child comfortable writing letters, numbers.

 

The Butterfly Class will also introduce your child to the amazing world of science and math in both fun and creative ways. The Butterfly Class will also continue to build your child’s confidence and skill set by developing social skills with peers and learning valuable leadership skills.
